  • Patent number: 10263951
    Abstract: The present invention, generally, is directed towards sending and receiving communication sessions across more than one network using an address family translation or network address translation (NAT) system and method. Such application is directed towards providing the ability to send and receive communications sessions between communication nodes, network edge devices, and the like, using more than one Internet protocol. This application is especially advantageous where communication sessions need to be transferred from one location to a second using the public Internet, i.e., Internet access provided by third-party Internet service providers (ISPs). The present invention, also, provides a translation system and method which may allow a communication node or a network edge device to recognize and interpret communication sessions received over a third-party Internet connection from a device hidden by a third party ISP-provided NAT implementation.

  • Patent number: 10263849
    Abstract: Generating discovery profiles for discovering components of a computer network using agent software can include receiving a command from a client device to generate a discovery profile for an agent software instance. A network subnet and at least one network gateway address can be obtained from the agent software instance, which network subnet and at least one network gateway address can be associated with a network interface of the computing device operating the agent software. At least one other network subnet can be obtained from the agent software instance by sending instructions to the agent software instance to identify the at least one other network subnet using the at least one network gateway address.

  • Patent number: 10257095
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a novel method for load balancing data messages that are sent by a source compute node (SCN) to one or more different groups of destination compute nodes (DCNs). In some embodiments, the method deploys a load balancer in the source compute node's egress datapath. This load balancer receives each data message sent from the source compute node, and determines whether the data message is addressed to one of the DCN groups for which the load balancer spreads the data traffic to balance the load across (e.g., data traffic directed to) the DCNs in the group. When the received data message is not addressed to one of the load balanced DCN groups, the load balancer forwards the received data message to its addressed destination. On the other hand, when the received data message is addressed to one of load balancer's DCN groups, the load balancer identifies a DCN in the addressed DCN group that should receive the data message, and directs the data message to the identified DCN.

  • Patent number: 10244054
    Abstract: For distributed processing using forecasted location-based IoT device clusters, at a central IoT device, a data source that is to be used and a duration for processing a workload is determined. A set of IoT devices operating within a threshold distance from the data source at a first time is selected. A subset of the set is selected to form a sub-cluster of IoT devices where a forecasted travel path of a member IoT device in the subset keeps the member within the threshold distance from the data source for the duration. A lightweight application is configured at a first IoT device in the subset which enables the first IoT device to participate in the sub-cluster and process the workload.

  • Patent number: 10237212
    Abstract: In an IMS (IP multimedia system) and/or RCS (rich communication services) environment, devices that support origination forking of various message types are configured to register with an IMS network and to provide an indication that they support origination forking. The IMS network is configured to record this information for its subscribing devices. When the IMS network receives a message request from an origination device, the message request is forwarded to termination devices as well as to other supporting devices that are associated with the user of the origination device.

  • Patent number: 10228981
    Abstract: Techniques for scalable virtualization of an Input/Output (I/O) device are described. An electronic device composes a virtual device comprising one or more assignable interface (AI) instances of a plurality of AI instances of a hosting function exposed by the I/O device. The electronic device emulates device resources of the I/O device via the virtual device. The electronic device intercepts a request from the guest pertaining to the virtual device, and determines whether the request from the guest is a fast-path operation to be passed directly to one of the one or more AI instances of the I/O device or a slow-path operation that is to be at least partially serviced via software executed by the electronic device. For a slow-path operation, the electronic device services the request at least partially via the software executed by the electronic device.
